Hong Kong lawmakers barred from Macau
(03-15 16:05)

Five Hong Kong legislators and social activists have been denied entry to Macau. They include Unionist Lee Cheuk-yan, League of Social Democrats Leung Kwok-hung, as well as activists Tsang Kin-shing, Koo Sze Yiu and Lui Yuk-lin.

They were among a group of 30-odd people - including 15 Pan-democrat legislators - who were keen to visit Macau to meet activists there.

But others including Democratic legislators Lee Wing-tat, Albert Ho Chun-yan, Kam Nai-wai, Cheung Man-kwong and Emily Lau Wai-hing - who were allowed entry later - staged a protest in Macau over their fellow Hong Kongers being denied entry to the former Portuguese enclave.
